What are some genuinely good recent horror movies?
I watched The Wailing (2016) few weeks back.
From all the movies that came out in 2016, I can say that this is one of the best movies.
Scary, mysterious and funny (in parts), "The Wailing" comes from director Hong-jin Na (South Korea) who has done a fabulous job. The script and the movie will make you think.
"The Wailing" takes a very different approach towards the never ending battle between Good and Evil (There are various biblical hints throughout the movie - well if you can find them :))
This movie is now available to stream on Netflix (US).
The Conjuring movies are good. I thoroughly enjoyed The Visit. There's also some great horror shorts on www.ohsnap.tv
Some good recent horror movies are here:
It depends on your personal preferences really, but I have a few I can throw at you.
Cabin in the Woods
The Conjuring/ and part 2
Hope these films will get you on your way.
